Put it another way: what if the Bible had errors in it? The readers of the Bible would then have to use their own judgment about what to believe and how to act.


You answered your own question. Why think when you can have a commentator do it for you?

But that is what they do already, isn't it?


If you put a baby and a barbecue in front of some "inerrantists", they'd need a YouTube video to tell them what to do with them.

Bible is alright, it just tells that the Heaven-and-Earth system is the visually programmed one, used by the Creator. To us, the Choice is given, to play the godly or godless game. Of course, if you are a program not believing in the Programmer, then you see all the software evolving from the hard disk primordial magnetization.

I think you'll find that most programs work just fine without believing in the programmer.

In my view, deciding how to live one's life isn't really "that simple". It requires learning and thinking conscientiously. "Inerrancy" (again, this is just my view), leads one down the proverbial primrose path, causing one to ignore that need for reasoning.

At it worst, we find that good people usually do good things, while bad people can do bad things, but to persuade good people to do bad things requires that lack of reason, whether from religion or some totalitarian ideology.
